How to Reinstall AVG

By Andrew Meer

AVG Anti-Virus is an anti-virus utility that allows you to detect and eliminate computer viruses and spyware programs. However, AVG Anti-Virus is prone to go down to new types of computer viruses, which can result in damaged components. In such a case, reinstalling AVG Anti-Virus is the only way to get it back up and running again. The “Repair Installation” feature in the AVG Anti-Virus Installation Setup allows you to re-install AVG Anti-Virus without uninstalling it.
